Latest Planetary habitability Stories
The study of the photospheric stellar abundances of the planet-host stars is the key to understanding how protoplanets form, as well as which protoplanetary clouds evolve planets and which do not.
An international team of astronomers have discovered a potentially habitable planet 22 light years away orbiting a nearby star.
A team of University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) astrophysicists are suggesting that a habitable Earth-like planet could exist in a distant solar system recently discovered by NASA’s Kepler Space Telescope.
Only 15 planets and 30 moons could potentially support alien life, according to a new online catalog of habitable planets launched by astronomers on Monday.
The Habitable Exoplanets Catalog database suggests over 15 exoplanets and 30 exomoons as potential habitable candidates.
For much of the scientific community, the search for alien life has long been dominated by the notion that our own planet serves as the best model of conditions best suited to the emergence of life on other worlds.
A new paper suggests that potentially habitable planets orbiting white dwarfs could be much easier to find â€“ if they exist â€“ than other exoplanets located so far.
Researchers have discovered a new, roughly Earth-sized planet that they believe could sustain life.
Tight double-star systems might not be the best places for life to spring up, according to a new study using data from NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope
The alien life forms that we are searching for might not be "life forms" after all--they could well be sentient machines.

In order to focus on the different areas of study, many subfields of astronomy emerge. One such area is the study of planets known, appropriately, as Planetary Astronomy. Observational Planetary Astronomy Even within the field of Planetary Astronomy, there are several divisions to...
